1* Generally speaking, when done within the law, is immigration good for America or bad for America?
2* A bill passed last year by the U.S. Senate would triple legal immigration over the next decade by awarding green cards to 33 million immigrants and work permits to roughly 13 million guest workers. The House has yet to vote on this bill. Do you favor or oppose legislation that triples legal immigration over the next 10 years?
3* A bill now being considered by the U.S. House of Representatives would allow food industry companies to hire 500,000 guest workers from other countries every year. Do you favor or oppose legislation that allows food industry companies to hire 500,000 foreign guest workers every year?
4* Who should determine the number of guest workers allowed in each state—should it be the federal government or the state government?
5* Suppose the federal government secures the border to prevent future illegal immigration. After that is accomplished, should the government increase the number of immigrants allowed to enter the country legally, decrease the number of immigrants allowed to enter legally or leave things unchanged?
